It's possible that your dog is experiencing an adverse reaction to the spaghetti sauce, as tomatoes, onions and garlic are toxic to dogs.

I hope by now, you've had her evaluated by the vet, and she's feeling much better, but keep in mind re: these toxic foods that adversely affect dogs. Also, being a 'senior', she'd be more prone to conditions like diabetes, hyperthyroidism and renal issues, so a routine senior blood panel would be a good idea.

I hope all will be well with your dog!
